Lost In Our Vaults Until Now!

Back in 1958, I helped to create this corporate animated video for Fortune Magazine, discussing the upcoming national highway system.

OK, so not really.  For the record, I wasn't even born in 1958.  But back in 2011, I don't remember how or why, but I stumbled upon an article on Fortune's blog where they were re-publishing "a classic story from [their] archive."  The article was accompanied by several illustrations which I just loved, and once again, I wanted to see them animated.  I'd love to credit the original illustrator here, but in the online images, the signature is too small to make out.  Chasmarty?  I don't know.

However, I will give credit to a site called CG that had a nice tutorial I followed to get that aged film look.

Also, ever since I was a little kid, I've wanted to create an animated short featuring the song "Powerhouse" - an animation industry staple for industrial montages.  So, check that one off.
